Static Cling... What gives?

Yesterday I washed, clay bar'd, swirl remover, polished, and waxed.... Now it seems like the car is a magnet for dust. Much worse than before doing all this. Is this normal? Any suggestions?

I was thinking the same thing. I don't know what is up with that. Yet, when you drive, dust seems to remain adhered to the paint.

You may try going over the car with a quick detailer and micro fiber and it may help remove some of the static

I bought Chemical Guys' quickdetailer; the guy claimed that it has antistatic property. I still see dust adhered to the paint even after hitting it with that stuff.
